I was surprise that Starbuck slapped Baltar i thought she would have at least have puched him life after death must calm you down.
Yeah, slapping doesn't really seem like Kara's style, I guess she has changed.
I think slapping conveys a much deeper emotional pain than just punching somebody, which conveys being pissed off in the moment and nothing more.
That's exactly what I thought when I saw it. She'll punch someone to prove she's tougher, that she's pissed, etc. But I think she was deeply hurt by Baltar outing her, and the slap was meant to convey that. She opened up to him despite their history and he used it to score a religious point. She had a right to be upset and hurt, for sure, not simply angry.
